Continuing on was Thomas Bach President of the IOC wishing a very Happy New Year, best wishes for the Year of the Tiger to all Chinese friends.  With thanks to an Olympic Year, he said China is a winter spot country with over 300 million people engaged in winter sports in about 2,000 ski resorts and ice rinks.

Bach continued to address Olympians.

“You have arrived here after overcoming so many challenges, living through great uncertainty. But now your moment has come: the moment you have been longing for – the moment we all have been longing for.”

— Thomas Bach President of the IOC

Bach continued to address athletes. (IOC President’s speech)

“Dear athletes, we all are standing with you. We all are supporting you. We all are cheering you on.

May this encourage you to go faster, to aim higher, to become stronger – together. In this way you will inspire the world in this Olympic Year with the same ambition, courage and strength like the Year of the Tiger.“

The lighting of the Olympic cauldron symbolizes unity, and a chance for all the athletes to shine in the Olympics.

7 former Chinese Olympic athletes, gold medalists, and Olympic Champions passed on the torch, and of them 2 cross-country ski Olympians. The 2 lit the Olympic cauldron together, representing gender equality.
